The summer concert series features the best local musicians from Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. Local restaurants and eateries provide snacks and food for hungry concertgoers while Firestone Brewery and Edna Valley Vineyards supply beer and wine for purchase. Non-alcoholic beverages are provided as well.
Over 50 bands apply each year to fill the 13 week line-up and past participants include Central Coast favorites: Resination, Damon Castillo Band, Big Daddy’s Blues Band, Still Time, Siko and many more.
Beginning in 1996 with one concert in June, July and August, Concerts in the Plaza, now in its 15th year, has blossomed into what some call the best free party in town! You’re invited to join us for the kick-off on Friday June 4th at 5:30 p.m. This year’s band line-up will be available in March so keep your eyes out to see when your favorite band is playing or check us out every Friday during summer and discover a new favorite sound!
Remember… Concerts in the Plaza is a family friendly event. No outside alcoholic beverages are allowed and this is a non-smoking event.
